Project Description

Name – The Square Hotel
Client – Vijan Pilay
Location – Durban, South Africa

The Square, located in the heart of the newly developed La Lucia Ridge commercial district in the northern suburbs of Durban is a landmark property. The site and building benefitted from unique planning criteria that allowed for the revitalisation of the existing building and the creation of the only hotel within the commercial precinct.

The architectural language of this sophisticated hotel is one of simplicity and minimalism. It has crisp and elegant features expressed on its eastern and western facades, which cements its prominence within the urban fabric of La Lucia Ridge. The use of low maintenance, high-quality materials underline its function as a leading four-star establishment in Durban.
